BUS PARKING PLACES
OLD FAIRGROUND: CENTRAL OMNIBUS PARKING PLACE
Buses and bus travellers are welcome in Schwetzingen. Comparably short paths to the parking places keep practical problems down. Please understand, though, that as a town with a historical town centre with narrow streets, we cannot always avoid bottlenecks during arrival and departure. Unfortunately, it is not possible to get off the bus at the Castle Square. The best way for buses to enter the town is to use the B 535 bypass, exit Schwetzingen Nord, and continue towards the inner town/old fairground (Alter Messplatz).
Overview of bus options
- The managed "Old Fairground" parking place is the central location in the town for parking and getting off the bus. The first 30 minutes of parking are free of charge. The daily flat rate is 10 EUR.
- Parking place at the stadium (Ketscher Landstraße): When the town's capacities are exhausted, e.g. on weekends with many visitors, you will find enough parking spaces there. GPS coordinates: 49° 22´41´´ N / 08° 33´30´´ E.
- Train station parking place (south of the train station building, bicycle parking area): Buses can stop here and let their passengers get on and off. From here, it's only a five- minute walk into town, and a 10-minute one to the Castle Square. It is not possible to leave the car here.
Schwetzingen strives to establish further improvements to make the stay smoother for bus drivers and guests. This includes signage, as well as information for guests arriving at the Alter Messplatz.
